The battle for the best wide receiver duo in the NFL is heating up. Alshon Jeffery recently talked about he believes that he and Brandon Marshall make up the top receiving tandem in the league.
"“I’m not the type of person that brags a lot about anything, but I feel that last year, what we did, we were at the top of the list as the two best receivers,” Jeffery said. “But that was last year. This year we have to set our goal and try our best to do the same thing we did last year, if not better.”"
Not to be outdone, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones came back and thought that he and Roddy White comprised the best duo:
"“When you step on the field, you should feel that you’re the best, you and whoever your partner is,” Jones said, via ESPN.com. “I feel like me and Roddy, we’re the best when we step on the field. We take it as a challenge every year: We want to go out and show everybody we’re the best one-two in the league.”"
